Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (7/8 ounce) package fat-free sugar-free vanilla pudding mix
  • 34 cup nonfat milk
  • 14 cup strong coffee, cooled or cold
  • 2 cups fat-free whipped topping (a la CoolWhip Free)
  • 8 -10 chocolate wafer cookies, crushed about 3/4 cup total
  • 14 teaspoon rum extract (optional) or 14 teaspoon brandy extract (optional)
  • 14 cup fat-free whipped topping (optional)


  1. Crush the cookies using a mini chopper or by rolling a pin over the cookies. If you do the later, save cleanup time by putting the cookies in a plastic bag.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the pudding, milk and coffee. (Add the extract if using.) Whisk together to make sure their are no lumps and the ingredients are well mixed. Fold in the whipped topping.
  3. Take 1/2 the cream and place it in the bottom of four parfait glasses. Sprinkle cookie crumbs over top, reserving a tablespoon or so for garnish.
  4. Divide the remaining cappuccino cream on top of the cookie crumbs and chill at least 3 hours and until you are ready to serve.
  5. To serve, place a small dollop of topping on the parfait, garnish with a light sprinkling of cookie crumbs.
